A truck collided with a school bus on a New Jersey highway Thursday morning, leaving multiple people injured, reports said. It happened around 9:30 a.m. with a bus carrying middle school students from the Paramus school district.

A red dump truck with a mangled front end was parked along the highway nearby, about 50 miles west of NY.
